PEPLUM Star in the news

Gina Lollobrigida, seen here from THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, is currently in the news in some sort of bizarre fake wedding/inheritance scheme.


Gina Lollobrigida yesterday pledged to have her former fiance jailed for the ‘fake’ marriage he is said to have orchestrated.

In an exclusive interview the legendary actress described Spaniard Javier Rigua as a ‘vulture’ out to get his hands on her £35million fortune.

Miss Lollobrigida, 85, made headlines this week after it emerged she had complained to Italian police that Mr Rigua, 51, had used fake documents to carry out a wedding ceremony ‘by proxy’. He has insisted the marriage was completely bona fide.

Speaking to the Mail from her villa on the outskirts of Rome, the actress once dubbed ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’ claimed Mr Rigua was waiting for her ‘to die’.

She said: ‘He is not guilty of just one fraud but of many. He is not a nice person. He will pay for what he has done.

‘I knew nothing about this until I did some research on the internet. He invented a false document to carry out this wedding and now he will pay. I will not rest until he has been brought to justice. He is nothing but a vulture, circling me, sniffing my blood. He married me and was waiting for me to die so he could inherit my possessions.’

Let's hope Gina gets this sorted out, before its too late. When I was a kid I absolutely loved her as Esmerelda in that colorful Hunchback of Notre Dame (Quinn was Quasimodo) - and then her Queen of Sheba !

In the 50s she and Sophia ruled .... then there was Silvana Mangano and Claudia Cardinale and Monica Vitti - what it is about these Italians ?
